This is what September looks like - leaves starting to die, tomatoes not going anywhere and producing like mad, a mix of cool and warm days. I am finding it kind of hard to get motivated to do much this month - besides what HAS to get done (laundry, dishes, work). I changed my schedule at work and am now working 4 ten hour days - with the bonus of a day off on Friday, but I am still adjusting to the timeframe of late evenings and shorter amounts of sun.

It was hot when I visited, but then it was also July. As I look back at the photographs I am struck by all the color, even the little bits captured in each photo. Also, the amount of trees, cacti, and other vegetation I saw everywhere -- even in downtown in a busy city.

I comment I wrote on a blog recently as a response to links on the conflict in Ferguson. I wanted to share it here to document in this blog as a memory of this time.

...entirely skipping July! Here are some things I have been reading and looking at lately.
I think since I am a visual learner I definitely get a fear of missing out when I see photos of places I would like to travel, food I would like to make/eat, and things I would like to have in my home.
I love taking the long way home - through the woods, fields, a new neighborhood, the scenic route
I would like to make a quilt like this from scraps
I read Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain
and The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine Aron.
Apparently I am both. :)
This video about harvesting orange blossoms in Italy is breathtaking
